Truly a Renaissance woman, artist Vivian Reiss has pursued a creative life to its fullest. The child of Holocaust survivors, she has spent her life embracing joy and beauty. An accomplished painter, Vivian has shown her work at over 50 one-woman exhibitions around the world. In addition to painting, Vivian is an architectural designer with over sixty projects in Toronto, which have been featured in publications globally. She is currently renovating an historic church in Atlanta, Georgia. Exploring the concept of urban farming before it became a trend, Vivian grows almost all of her own food in her Toronto garden and is currently writing a cook book inspired by her garden. And as an avid world traveler and mother of two, she has been dedicated to instilling the idea of inventive freedom and thought in her two accomplished children. Vivian Reiss brings her colorful outlook to all she does, and all those she meets, inspiring them to explore all the possibilities life has to offer.
